Struggles To Save Is Widening Income Gap

Siti Aiysyah Tumin, Research Associate at Khazanah Research Institute, discusses the structural reasons behind why young people are not saving enough and running up high credit card debts, whether the minimum wage should be raised, and the government’s mixed messages - encouraging people to save but at the same time loosening the criteria for EPF withdrawals.
